About Breast Implant Size and Cost? (photo)

What do you estimate would be the specific measurments/cup size for my aspired breast size on the model in the picture? and what do you think estimate would be the highest/cheapest cost for this size? is there more risk for bigger implants and how much would the exampled size weigh? i currently have only 2grand saved. Do you know of any loan schemes for boobs jobs where you can pay for it weekly/monthly for a number of years instead of one big payment?

Breast Implant Size and Cost

Fees will vary considerably depending on the area and the number of board certified plastic surgeons. Prices in South Florida tend to be lower than expensive cities such as New York or Los Angeles or with areas with few board certified plastic surgeons. We charge $2800 + MD Anesthesia related expenses for silicone implants. Gel breast implants are generally $1000 to $1500 more. There tends not to be additional cost due to size. Since you can get quality work at lower prices, patients tend to come to South Florida from out of state or out of country.

To ensure quality work at most cost effective prices, consult with board certified plastic surgeons that own their own nationally accredited facilities. These surgeons must maintain the highest standards to keep accreditation. Moreover, the surgeons are motivated to ensure quality and properly trained staff (to minimize time and frustration in surgery), private and comfortable facilities (to ensure continued referrals), and less waste (to ensure that they can remain competitive financially with other centers).


The size of the implants must be appropriate for your body to minimize risks and complications. There are a number of external financing companies with a wide range of payment plans. Proceed carefully for centers that promise internal financing.

Consult in person with 3 board certified plastic surgeons to understand your options.

Breast augmentation prices vary from city to city, and from surgeon to surgeon. Size should not affect the cost. Overly large implants do carry more risk.

The best way to decide what size you want is to see a surgeon, and try different sizes in the office and see which suits you best.
